Progressive Mayor Who Supported Black Lives Matter Gets Home Vandalized During Riots, Calls It ‘Domestic Terrorism’

This does beat all. From a distance she was an extraordinarily bleeding (bleeting)  heart, up close it’s “unfair.”

Simple, ignorant soul, the people’s choice. How the culture forms idiots.

BTW, as for the fools in black, they spray-painted her house, which already had a Black Lives Matter banner on its wall. Do their mothers know they’re out?

Seattle’s no-cop zone, approved by mayor and governor, means let a guy rob your store

CHOP is Capitol Hill (neighborhood) Occupied Protest. It’s a lawless enclave where you better not defend your property.

Seattle seems to have ceded the governance of CHOP to protest groups, including Black Lives Matter, Urban League, Choose 180, Not This Time, Africatown, and others in an effort to make the area a better place to occupy. It appears the police department will mostly stay out of CHOP, except to “respond to significant life-safety issues in the area.” The city defined those as “an active shooter incident, an assault, a structure fire, significant medical emergency (i.e. heart attack stroke, trauma) and other incidents that threaten a person’s life safety.”

That has consequences. On Sunday night, the owner of a car parts store in CHOP said a protester broke in and tried to steal some cash and set a fire. According to an account on local news station KIRO7, the business owner grabbed the suspect and called the cops — “but despite more than a dozen 911 calls, police and fire never showed up.”

Well property is theft, right?

Today’s Gospel reading is not apt for us in churches’ lockdown . . .

Updating one’s meditation . . .

Sunday sermons, weekday observations

. . . It tells us not to pray just to be seen, . . .

Gospel MT 6:1-6, 16-18

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Take care not to perform righteous deeds
in order that people may see them;
otherwise, you will have no recompense from your heavenly Father.
When you give alms, do not blow a trumpet before you,
as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets
to win the praise of others.
Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward.
But when you give alms,
do not let your left hand know what your right is doing,
so that your almsgiving may be secret.
And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.

When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites,
who love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on street corners
so that others may see…

A model bishop, endorsed by Pope John 23rd

Quite a life.

Gregory Barbarigo (Italian: Gregorio Barbarigo; 16 September 1625 -June 18, 1697) was an Italian Cardinal Archbishop of Padua, a diplomat and scholar.
Born into a famous family from Venice, he traveled with the Venetian ambassador, Alvise Contarini, to the Congress of Münster in 1648, where the Peace of Westphalia was developed.

Soon aftewards he became a priest and was consecrated as the first Bishop of Bergamo by Pope Alexander VII, whom he had met in Germany. After that, he was given the dignity of cardinal and was made the bishop of the Diocese of Padua. He was a strong supporter of the work of the Council of Trent. He made the seminaries of Padua and of Bergamo larger and added a library and printing press in Padua.

He had the reputation of being another Charles Borromeo, renowned like him for his wonderful zeal in every kind of labor for the clergy and the faithful, but especially the poor.

He died in Padua in 1697. In 1960, Pope John XXIII canonized him.

A priestly, also a priest’s, bishop


George P. Bush says he’ll vote for Trump in 2020 election

Son of Jeb, supporter of Trump from 2016, gives very good reason: Trump is “only thing standing between America and socialism.”

Excellent point. Like most Dems, Joe Biden would shilly-shally in the face of this threat, if not actively promote it. So like T. personally or not, he’s the man.
